Seattle Seahawks

Lyles and Harris are two of the most recent well-known Indiana prep stars to make it to the NBA.

“It was a big goal and I felt a lot of emotion there. After a tough start, it’s definitely nice to get one like that,” said Bennett, who has three goals and eight points in his last seven games.

The 21-year-old, who has been playing alongside rookie Mark Jankowski and a combination of Jaromir Jagr and Garnet Hathaway, has been especially hot on home ice with points in each of his last seven home games (four goals, six assists) at the Scotiabank Saddledome. That streak began on Nov. 9 after he failed to pick up a point in the season’s first 15 games.

Lyles (Arsenal Tech High School) and Harris (Hamilton Southeastern High School) made what will be their only trip back to Indianapolis this season. Harris (Michigan State) and Lyles (Kentucky) were highly sought after recruits during their time in high school with Lyles winning a state championship his senior year. On Sunday night the two combined for 46 points.

The Chargers earned the luxury of resting and watching Sunday. That defense, and Rivers’ 434 yards passing — all of which allowed them to mask a nightmare of a day in the kicking game — gave them a nice cushion with their play Thursday.

They know that what they’re attempting is rare, and there’s no chance they don’t know exactly how rare by now. The only team in NFL history to go from an 0-4 start to a playoff berth is … the 1992 San Diego Chargers, of Junior Seau and Stan Humphries and a top-five defense, who caught and passed the Chiefs to win the West.

The Dolphins wore their 1972 uniforms, and for the first time in four prime-time appearances this season, they rose to the occasion. Miami tried to turn the game into a laugher in the third quarter when Landry caught a touchdown pass and then set the ball down in the end zone and pumped it repeatedly — a reference to the Patriots’ Deflategate scandal.

Maualuga had 23 tackles for the Dolphins this season in six games, four of them being starts.

Mike Davis, RB, Seattle Seahawks: Davis had some big moments during Monday night’s contest against Atlanta, but exited during the Seahawks’ opening drive of the second half. After Davis was examined on the sideline, the team declared him out for the duration of the game due to a groin injury.

More important to Roseman is that his Eagles can virtually clinch the NFC East after just 10 games with a win Sunday night at Dallas, which would put them four games ahead of the Cowboys with six to play.

The Eagles will catch the Cowboys in a vulnerable position this week due to the absence of Ezekiel Elliott. Even if All-Pro left tackle Tyron Smith returns from his groin injury, he may be limited. After Smith’s replacements gave up six sacks to the Falcons’ Adrian Clayborn alone last week, the Cowboys better hope Smith returns against a solid Eagles defensive line.

But, in a twist of fate, it was Ball’s decision to eschew traditional sneaker deals and go the Big Baller Brand route that made Fox the top target for sneaker companies among the 2017 draft class.

The Dolphins (4-5) likely will turn to either Mike Hull or Chase Allen at middle linebacker for Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Washington Redskins have reached the point where they probably cannot afford to lose any more players. They definitely cannot afford to lose another game.

After watching a stirring win dissolve into a crushing overtime defeat Sunday at New Orleans, the Redskins had to forget it fast as they prepare to host their first-ever Thanksgiving Day game, a division contest Thursday night against the New York Giants.steelers_037

You have to respect another man’s judgment for why they’re protesting …

From Cleveland we travel and hour and a half north, through wending country highways and fields of unending amber until we’re parked on the campus of the University of Minnesota. Every third student traipsing from dorm rooms and off-campus housing to a string of bars in the shadow of TCF Bank stadium is wearing maroon-and-gold striped overalls, purchased for $54.99 before tax at the school bookstore.

I just hope and I pray to God that this country finds the energy and the heart to come together as a whole.”

“While some people might focus on a tragic event and an evil act, to me, all I remember are the thousands of acts of kindness and love and warmth that came out of this.”

Maybe it was just simmering, palpable tension between Rivers and Paul. “There are times players don’t want to be coached by you anymore,” Rivers says, without mentioning Paul’s name. (Paul declined comment through his representatives.) Rivers has seen Paul’s remarks about the team’s culture. “Who controls the culture?” he asks. “The players. Always the players. And even with Chris’ comments, he thought about coming back. J.J. [Redick] was begging to come back.”

(Redick disagrees. “There was never any indication from my agent that I wanted to go back,” he says. “I didn’t beg to come back. I didn’t want to come back.”)

Detroit lost this game at the goal line, bungling three second-half red-zone opportunities. On their first two second-half drives, Detroit had first-and-goal from the Steelers’ 4, only to come away with just three points. The Lions, down one, turned the ball over on downs the first time around after calling two pass plays from the 1-yard line.
